1 dead, 3 others wounded in multiple Minneapolis shootings early Sunday

All of the shootings were reported between approximately 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.

One person was killed and multiple others shot in the early hours of Sunday morning in Minneapolis. 

According to Minneapolis Police Department, the fatal shooting happened around 2:23 a.m. Sunday on the 4300 block of S 4th Avenue. Offices arrived at the scene and found a man inside a building, where he was in critical condition having been shot multiple times. 

The victim, believed to be in his 30s, was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. Prior to his death, MPD launched a homicide investigation "due to the seriousness of his injuries," MPD said in a release. 

The suspect fled from the scene before police arrived. Police believe that the victim and a suspect got into a dispute that escalated into a shooting. The victim's identity will be released at a later stage by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office. 

There were also shootings that resulted in non-critical injuries to other victims at 1:24 a.m., 2 a.m. and 3:06 a.m., according to Minneapolis PD. 

The 1:24 a.m. shooting happened at the intersection of North 4th Street and North 1st Avenue, where officers heard the sound of shots. A short distance away, a possible suspect was arrested and booked into jail. At the same approximate time, a man was transported by private vehicle to HCMC with a non-critical gunshot wound. 

The shooting that was reported around 2 a.m. Sunday happened on the 300 block of West Broadway Avenue, where a police sergeant on patrol reported hearing gunshots. The sergeant was investigating when he spotted a vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed. That vehicle wound up at North Memorial Health Hospital, serving as a transport for a man who had suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. 

The shooting that was reported by police at 3:06 a.m. happened at an unknown location. At the time of the media release, police stated that officers were at HCMC when a man walked into the emergency department with a non-critical gunshot wound. 

All of the aforementioned shootings are being investigated.
